In bottle: Lemon herbal. Candylike. Sweet, definitely sweet. Which is rather odd, given the notes. I was not expecting something to remind me of the scent of fresh lemon drops. I was expecting something a bit harsher.
Wet: Ah, very herbally. Somewhat soothing at first, but the soothing feeling goes away when the ozone strikes. Oh yeah, definitely ozone there. There is fruit hiding beneath all this; shyly peeking out and going, "Oh, hey, I'm here. Just so you know." Right now, mostly lavender and ozone. Whatever the ozone note is, it's very lemony to me. That could also be from the white musk, but I'm thinking it's the ozone since white musk has yet to develop effervescent qualities on my skin. Also, whooo are my sinuses feeling clearer. Definitely a chilly scent to inhale.
Dry: Okay, it seems to be that the ozone and lavender have the strongest throw of the notes. Which is quite fine, as neither are overpowering or make me feel headachey. Sometimes the currant likes to tag along, but all I'm really catching of that note unless I put my nose right against where I tried the oil is a vague fruity sweetness that reminds me somewhat of Candy Phoenix. The musk never develops much beyond a close, skin hugging warmth, which is a strange sort of contrast to the chill from the ozone. Then again, the herbal, almost bitter lavender is an interesting contrast to the sweetness of the currants. I admit that to my nose, sometimes this goes slightly industrial cleanser... but I have a very odd fondness for the smell of cleaning solutions, so this is not a complaint from me. However, I would caution those sensitive to such smells to find something else, especially if their skin likes to amp ozone and lavender.
I'd have more to say, but my brother decided now was an excellent time to make spicy noodles, so now that's all I can smell. (Well, that and the occasional hit of Lurid, but mostly the spices from the noodles. )
Edited to add scent description... and fix it when I discovered there were special tags for it.
